VINTAGE MOROCCAN GEOMETRIC PURPLE RUG. 8 ft 10 in x 5 ft 10 in (2.69 m x 1.78 m).

Breathtaking Vintage Geometric Purple Moroccan Rug, Country Of Origin: Morocco, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century – The breathtaking colors of this brilliant vintage Moroccan rug from the 20th century are a delight to the senses. The maroons, roses, pinks, and plums will brighten any space and give it a playful feel. This is the perfect piece for creating an eclectic Boho chic or Boudoir-style interior.

The Moroccan people who live in the Atlas Mountains have a tradition of creating beautiful masterpieces that goes back centuries. They are masters of color and design. The women of the tribe pass the tradition from generation to generation through song and poetry. Each piece is a work of art that is unique and beautiful.

The women of the tribe also use the rugs to keep the stories and traditions of their people alive. Each symbol in the rug has a special meaning. Diamonds can signify women. Two or more diamonds together can mean and husband, wife, and their children. A diamond within a diamond is a symbol meant to protect the family from misfortune and ill will. Every separation or break in the pattern is intentional and has meaning. Every time the pattern changes significantly, it signifies a major change in the story.

These rugs are as fascinating as they are beautiful. Moroccan rugs are soft and plush, with a longer pile to create extra warmth. This year, bright and spirited colors such as Red Pepper, Bubble Gum, maroons, and other saturated tones are being used to create a room that is deep and dramatic. This rug is the perfect piece for creating a space that is bright and textured with plenty of depth.

In the mid-20th century, Moroccan rugs were used to add contrast to the streamlined furniture and simple geometric forms. This rug complements a room that features function and geometric shapes by adding a pop of color and creating a more casual feel. This is a vintage rug that also has a colorful and contemporary ambiance.
